analyst jim walsh joins me here in a very chilly boston at this hour. gentlemen, we've been talking about this, you know, off and on this evening about the fbi. whether they dropped the ball. and a lot of monday morning quarterbacking going on. lou, to you in new york. it's too soon to tell, but there was certainly -- the fbi will certainly have to answer some questions after the older brother took a trip to russia and no one really followed up on that, lou. >> yes, i agree with you, don. i think there are some questions that need to be answered in the proper forum. i do think director muller and administrators of the fbi that had knowledge of the heads up they received from the russian government, sfb, their intelligence group, they'll have to explain exactly what transpired here and answer as to why they did or didn't do things. >> jim, it is bloelieved, everye has said they believe the brothers acted alone. is it too soon to tell? considering as much firepower they had and how some people thought they planned this out. >> yes. >> could there be someone else out there? >> i'm glad you a
. let's bring in retired atf special agent in charge, nbc news analyst jim cavanaugh. jim, it's, it's a changing situation. but certainly it is a dramatic scene. it almost looks like a war zone, streets empty, we don't know how many officers are on the scene. but the tension seems to be remarkably high. there's some thought that perhaps dzhokah tsarnaev is holed up and is being negotiated with at this point. >> alex, that's exactly right. you know when you're in command of a situation like this, i always like to break it down to the main things that handle the main crisis points and address those. and there's three interlocking rings here that are affecting boston and the citizens. and that's what the commanders have got to focus on. one is the standoff with dzhokhar, we can talk about how that interlocks and what's going on there. the second is, the placement of another pressure cooker device in the city that they've located. and the question of are there more. and then the third interlocking circle is, whether or not there's these two accomplices, as pete williams described and ma
torrential rains hit the area. a swollen river is forcing evacuations and road closures in some areas. jim spellman is live in peoria, illino illinois. it looks bad where you are. that water seems pretty high. >> about 14 feet above where it normally is right now, fredricka. this is the illinois river. it goes right through the heart of peoria, illinois. this building, the historic river station trying to keep dry. they're pumping out rooms in there. you can see people here are doing everything they can to try to prepare for another two feet or so of water. here in downtown peoria along the waterfront, they have erected this sort of handmade levy. sand bags over walls. they predict the water is going to get to just about here. if their predictions are right, they're hoping most of the businesses here are going to be okay. if their predictions are off, if any more rain comes or is higher than they predict, it will be trouble for the businesses. we were up in neighboring peoria heights, illinois. several businesses under water there. with 2 more feet to go in that part of illinois, there's g
wants a review by the intelligence committee. jim acosta joins us now from capitol hill. jim, what did she say exactly? >> well, anderson, senator feinstein, who is the chair of the senate intelligence committee, she did not say that the fbi dropped the ball. she didn't want to go that far, but she does want a review of what the fbi knows about all this and to get at what tamerlan tsarnaev was up to when he went back to russia back in 2012. he apparently made a trip there. and this was after he was apparently interviewed by the fbi back in 2011. the fbi said in a statement friday night that it had been asked to investigate tamerlan's ties to potential terror groups, to potential militant groups and that during that inquiry the fbi interviewed tamerlan. and so senator feinstein and some other senators here on capitol hill want to know how is it that tamerlan tsarnaev was able to travel to russia last year for six months and how did he get back into the country given all of that information? and so senator feinstein says there will be a hearing on this perhaps as early as tomorrow to get
declared disaster areas in more than 40 counties. cnn's jim spellman is in illinois where the river has been overflowing since sunday and residents they are they're preparing for even more water. >> the last thing they want to hear about here is another inch of rain coming. i'm not sure it will really make a huge difference. but take a look. two blocks in from the water and it's inundated here a foot up at the edge. three or four feet there at the worst. we haven't seen widespread reports of this kind of damage, but here in spring bay, it's having a huge impact. take a look. last minute prep in spring bay, illinois, as floodwaters inundate this riverside community. where is your home? >> my home is that gray and white mobile home with the black shutters on it. >> you can't get to your home by foot now? >> no. >> have you ever seen this much water come up here? >> no. >> scary? >> yep. >> the home, along with about 40 others in this trailer community, began to flood sunday and the water has continued to rise. >> yesterday i cried all day. >> reporter: and today? >> today i'm not crying y
tsavraev, at the request of the russian government. cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta joins us from washington now with what's going on. a lot of frustration, a lot of what ifs, could if this boston magnificent y massacre been prevented? those are the questions that will be brought forward today. >> that's right, wolf. it will be playing out on capitol hill. the senate intelligence committee has set a hearing for 2:30 this afternoon with fbi officials, they will be the lead briefers at this hearing. i'm told from a source of that committee. lawmakers want to find out if federal investigators somehow failed to see big red flags coming from tamerlan tsavraev. as lawmakers are praising authorities for the quick work in the boston bombing case, members of congress are still calling for hearings, into the fbi's handling of dead suspect tamerlan tsavraev, who traveled back to a dangerous region of russia, just last year. >> what did he do, when he went back for six months? sit in his aunt and uncle's home for six months or doing something else? and when he came back to this countr
clint? >> number one, i think as jim and i have discussed, the older brother was probably the primary influence. he influenced his younger brother. this 19-year-old man now has lost that influence. he's lost that decision-making ability on the part of his older brother, so he's on his own. look, for all we know right now, three different things. he's either hiding in one of these houses, he's under a house and maybe he's bled to death because he got shot in the ch e shootout, too, or he was able to escape. if law enforcement closes that net tighter, they get through every house and every apartment and he's not there, that's going to be a new time to consider what we're doing. did we miss him? did he get away? and we also have to consider motive on this which is most important, and, you know, sometimes we look at the simplest motive and it makes no sense to us because it's almost chaotic. and it may be that these two young men were simply trying in their own terrible way to bring attention to the chechnyan, vis-a-vis the timmy mcveigh type who said collateral damage. these are the thi
in and get out. at kathy and jim doherty's house, several blocks away from the explosion, they came home to broken glass and cracks in the ceiling. >> i can't explain, i know i'll never hear anything that loud again. >> reporter: authorities are allowing only some residents to see their homes. >> we're very, very fortunate. lot of people have lost everything. >> reporter: people closest to the worst damage were told overnight it could be another week before they get back in, they're still worried about broken gas pipes or pipes connected to the plant, causing another deadly explosion. no one here wants to relive this. 14 people were killed. federal investigators are here. they still haven't shared what they think caused the plant to blow. homeowners they're letting in now, still live far away from the plant that exploded. it is several streets, several city blocks that way. workers there now say, walls around the building are still crumbling and the fire there is still smoldering. they may have to live this way for months. for "good morning america," steve osunsami, abc news, west, texas
petition for citizenship was denied. this is a mixed martial arts jim njim -- yim gym. he was regarded as one if not the best boxer here. he disappeared for some time and reappeared a few weeks ago and acting as if he owned the place. he was asked to leave because he was being disrespectful to other people working out at the gym and law enforcement took the surveillance equipment from this gym in part of their investigation. one fellow boxer told us tsarnaev struck a figure in the gym calling him a premiere athlete. trainer eddie bishop travelled with tsarnaev to a national competition. you said he was eccentric. >> he had cowboy boots on and leather pants and a special hat. >> bishop says tsarnaev was strong but not tenacious. >> he had a really big punch. he knocked a lot of people out but, you know, he lacked that fight. >> reporter: what do you mean? >> he couldn't get you out of there quick. >>> meanwhile, authorities in canada say they foiled a planned terror attack. on monday two men were arrested and charged with receiving reports from al qaeda networks to bomb a canadian railw
and expert jim walsh. good to have you here. >> good to be with you. >> first of all, have you ever seen anything like this in a major metropolitan city in america? >> first of all, i've never seen anything like it at all. and in particular how it is touching various parts of my life. yesterday i taught my class at m.i.t. from 1:00 to 3:00, you know, hung out at my office, made my way home, only to see on the news that two blocks from my office a person who workeds for the same place i do, m.i.t., had been assassinated. i woke up this morning, to the sound of helicopters. i live -- i live on the watertown border. i woke up, my phone is ringing off the hook, i drive to watertown. blocks from where a reporter is, that's where my studio is. and streets are blocked off. the streets are empty. there were national guard, tactical police, state police, lots of media satellite trucks, i go into the studio like i always do and lock the door, right, because we're all on lockdown now. and then began to talk to your colleagues and then i received a phone call from my daughter. and my daughter who gr
're also learning a lot more about this 19-year-old suspect who is still at large. cnn's jim acosta has been keeping track of what his relatives, other acquaintances are saying, as well as some of the things that we're learning about this 19-year-old, who apparently, what he said about himself on social media. jim, tell our viewers what you're learning. >> wolf, the profile that's emerging of this suspect, a young man who is sort of a mystery. he's described by his classmates, even some relatives as a friendly student athlete, but one relative, and even the suspect's activities on social media suggest he may have become more radical leading up to the bombing. the manhunt may be for someone who is just 19 years old, but authorities warn the boston bombing suspect who is still on the run, believed to be wearing the white baseball cap in the surveillance video released by the fbi, who looks even more boyish in this updated photo, should be considered armed and dangerous. relatives who haven't been in touch with him can only guess about his motives since he moved to the u.s. over a decade a
away with it. they were not expecting this to happen within a couple of days. >> final question, jim, for the moment. the individual, the youngest brother, dzhokhar, he, as we know, is on the loose. the police believe that they have him in a contained area. how does this end? i mean, obviously he's a font of information alive, but how does it end? >> well, he could be dead. you know, there's a report there was blood found and he may have been wounded in the huge shootout with the police, 200 rounds are fired. he could have been wounded and he could be dead under one of those houses or in garage back there. so he could have bled out. that's one possibility. he could have killed himself is another possibility. he could be hiding there with a bomb strapped on him that he may detonate when the agents and detectives and police surround him. or he may surrender. so that's -- or try to get through to cordon. that's about his options right there, and that's about how it will play out. we'll see in the ensuing hours. you know, we knew when the pictures were put out that before the sun rose at
's jim dickey has some answers. >> good morning, john, diana. tracking a cold front. pushing eastward, seeing soaking rainfall this morning across portions of the midwest. and snow in the ohio valley, and snow in the twin cities, into wisconsin. back on into denver. good news is the snow does wind down but not before many spots have picked up as much as 6 to 12 inches of snow, twin cities area up into canada. this is while we are seeing soaking rainfall here. many of the spots. river levels fall from record levels. flash flooding, major concern where the rain is falling. but all of the rain, all of the floodwater continues to filter down the mississippi. many spots southward still watching the rivers rise. widespread major flooding ongoing here through the week. john and diana, back to you. >> jim, thank you. >>> to boston now where top officials have kicked off fund raidsing. efforts for the victims of the marathon bombing. >> that's right. the one fund boston has already gotten $1 million commitment from the john hancock insurance company. you can see the number one prominently on t
